the rules for a long time said you have to have a 2.5lb min extinguisher in the car, hinting that larger was better. i did a bunch of research for our utv (the plan was to buy a setup for the utv and carry it over to the lemons car if it was cost effective to do so).here’s what i learned. what if your fuel cell is in a separate compartment from both the driver and the engine and you run a nozzle or set of nozzles at it…does that reduce the amount of foam/gas that gets to the driver? also in a moving car it can be diluted by the slipstream and air currents inside the cabin so coming to a stop first is a better bet. if your idea is to add time to get out of an on fire car, with full extinguishing being a secondary consideration but one that leaves most of the car and the electronics usable afterwards, the novec fe system is better.
fire is no joke, and as long as we can get out of the car, to hell with anything else. highly preferred is a 10-lb system covering the driver compartment, engine compartment, and fuel storage area. remember that the purpose of a fire suppression system is to buy you enough time to get the car stopped so you can get out safely. (see post above) if you want to carry a system that is capable of extinguishing a burning fuel cell, you should consider driving one of the safety trucks.” pulled his suppression system which knocked down the fire but it reignited before he came to a stop and could get out.
my teammates started the install while i’m away so at this point i don’t even know what i have to finish other than wiring and install of the test module and go button. ours was manually fired. we put a pull handle on the drivers side by the kill switch and the other one on the passenger side near the window. we used a 8 nozzle system. 4 under the hood aimed at both sides of the engine, 2 in the divers area aimed at the knees. the last two were aimed at the fuel cell. it’s been a few years, but for chumpcar i have a 2 nozzle system. one nozzle attaches to above the firewall in the cowel area and points at the fuel rail. the second points and the drivers leg/feet area and is mounted in some dash/console support. the idea is to allow the driver to escape. it has a pull trigger mounted near the kill switch where the factory radio would be. i found it pretty straight forward to install.
the new rule is a minimum 5lb suppression system. with a recommendation of a 10lb system. how long will it take for the rules to change onboard fire suppression will become mandatory on 1/1/19. minimum acceptable is a 5-lb system covering the driver compartment and engine compartment. highly we’re getting really close to being ready for lemons, lemons rally rules, lemons rally rules, 24 hours of lemons points, lemons race suit, 24 hour lemons roll cage.
